Saturday, April 12th & 26th 9:30-12:30pm
We meet in the green learning lab across the parking lot from the main visitor center at 9:30am. We will start with a lesson on invasive non-native shrub and tree identification. Volunteers will learn to identify common invasive plants like buckthorn, privet and honeysuckle and then we'll head out into the forest to practice our identification skills. Finally, we'll cut and treat those unwanted invaders improving habitat for native species.
Please come prepared to work off the trail with warm clothes and sturdy shoes that could get dirty. These opportunities are open to the public so walks-ins are welcome. Application not required for group work days. Bring a friend! Anyone can call Jessie's cell phone (248) 245-3977 to find out more.
